Umno’s unprincipled leaders and their followers

Let’s talk about principles. Since we have politicians who don’t appear to have one. Having a principle will make you seem consistent. Consistency in your principles will make you become trustworthy. Even Tunku Abdul Aziz has become somewhat a blur from his old self. We will talk about him at the end of this article. … Continue reading

Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Ketua Pemuda Umno and the absence of christian apologists

Lim Kit Siang and his ilk (including his son, Lim Guan Eng) will never fail us in delivering spiteful and racist festive messages promoting hate among the people of Malaysia. Lim Guan Eng in his infamous Wesak Day speech some time ago was even more acrimonious and vindictive. He seditiously tried to agitate the buddhists … Continue reading

We now have popular Umno leaders

“Perhaps the less we have, the more we are required to brag.”  – John Steinbeck from his book, East of Eden The majority of the thinking society would feel that a political leader needs to be inherently intelligent enough to know that doing things right is paramount than doing things just to be popular. Take for example … Continue reading

“Umno must choose leaders who had served the party from the lower ranks” says Ketua Pemuda’s mom

In News Straits Times today, where the editors appeared to be under the thumb of the Ketua Pemuda, an article was published on page 8 which had precisely shown how the editors can be quite naive in fulfilling the political agenda of the Ketua Pemuda. EXPERIENCE COUNTS: They must heed needs of all races Umno … Continue reading

The illogic of a liberal and progressive UMNO

Here is an article written by a commentator: _______________________________________________________________________ The illogic of a liberal and progressive UMNO – Part I By Ramayana The recent statement by UMNO’s new Ketua Pemuda (who is also the old Ketua Pemuda, of course) defies logic. And that drives me nuts. Enough to make me put finger to keyboard and … Continue reading

The Liberal Ketua Pemuda

It’s good that the Ketua Pemuda admits he is liberal. He had never admitted it before and in the previous article, we just labelled him as such only due to his affinity towards doing something unorthodox and non traditional. We half expected him to say that he is at most, a modernist. Meaning, trying to modernise … Continue reading

“Buruk ketuanya, buruklah pengikutnya”

For the past couple of weeks there have been no articles regarding the upcoming Umno elections in this blog. It was on purpose because this Umno election, well at least to the opinion of this blogger will not see much change. Whether specifically on the line-up or generally on Umno itself. We can bet, after … Continue reading

Pak Lah : Awakening the bad memories

I wrote this paragraph about Khairy Jamaluddin in an article (do read it again, thank you) a couple of months back: There is also this principle that one must always use in politics. When the enemy hates you, you are doing the right thing. But when your political enemy is loving you, then something is indeed … Continue reading

The case of Khairy – won the social media, lost the votes

I want to applaud a blogger at the blogsite for a really good article on history. As someone who is fascinated with the history subject, I can’t help but to agree with what the blogger Fatimah Zuhri had to say. Below are some of the snippets of the said article – you can read … Continue reading

And within then next 45 days, there will be a new line up of cabinet ministers that will administer this country for the next 5 years.

Straigthening out YB Khairy Jamaluddin’s column

Below is an excellent article by blogger SatD of Pure Shiite. It is to reinforce the MPs into doing the right thing instead of skirting over the problem and sweeping the mess under the carpet. This mess, if left untreated, will torment your own children and grandchildren in the future. Although some of YB Khairy’s … Continue reading

What shouldn’t make a minister?

I heard a cabinet reshuffle is coming real soon. This will mark the start of Prime Minister Dato Sri Najib Tun Razak’s leadership for the critical 2011. The year where we shall see the beginnings of the transformation project he has set forth for the nation. Also, to witness the early results of these transformations. … Continue reading
